www.BrendaNovak.com Home is where her heart is When Presley Christensen returns to Whiskey Creek with her little boy after two years away, she has completely changed her life. She's made peace with her past and overcome the negative behavior that resulted from her difficult childhood. Now she's back in the small town that was the closest thing to "home" she ever knew--the town where she can be with the sister who's her only family. There's just one catch. Aaron Amos still lives in Whiskey Creek, at least until he moves to Reno to open a branch of the Amos brothers' auto body shop. And no matter how hard she's tried, Presley hasn't been able to get over him. Seeing him again makes the longing so much worse. But she hopes she can get through the next few months, because she can't fall back into his arms...or his bed. She's come too far to backslide now. And there's a secret she's been guarding--a secret she'll do anything to protect.

The sixth book in the Whiskey Creek series is a riveting romantic read. After two years away, Presley Christensen returns to Whiskey Creek with her son in tow. SheÃ¢??s turned her life around and she can be close to her sister, thereÃ¢??s just one catch, the one man she could never get over, Aaron Amos still lives in Whiskey Creek. She canÃ¢??t backslide and give into her longings no matter how much she wants to because sheÃ¢??s guarding a secret Ã¢?? one that sheÃ¢??ll do anything to protect.
This steady paced plot keeps readers entertained with lots of suspense, drama and romance that capture the heart. The author brings this story to life with well written words, vivid imagery and details and the characters are strong, compelling and easily related to ensuring that the reader gets caught up in the story.
The attraction between Presley and Aaron in undeniable and the sex scenes are hot and steamy but the relationship is a mess. The couple both have some serious past issues that complicate the way they see things, handle things and of course the entire non communication thing they have going on. The author conveys all the emotions and personalities with such vibrant intensity that the reader canÃ¢??t help but get emotionally involved in the story and see it through to the end with tears, some laughs and some genuine happy feeling moments.
The author brings true romance to life with her stories, by this I mean that no one is perfect, no instant true love forever because life isnÃ¢??t a fairy tale and the author sticks to whatÃ¢??s real. This adds lots of depth to the stories and make the happily ever afters seem more lifelike. This story is no different and the plot has some surprising twist that I certainly didnÃ¢??t see coming to spice it up even more. I canÃ¢??t wait to read the next Whiskey Creek novel, maybe itÃ¢??ll be RileyÃ¢??s or KyleÃ¢??s story.

While I haven’t yet read every book in the Whiskey Creek series (but I will be), I can honestly say that those I have, are always an emotional rollercoaster.
The characters in this instalment prove that we are undoubtedly molded by the choices we make in life, and those thrust upon us, and that only strength and determination can enable us to rise above adversity, rather than sink beneath the obstacles that are placed in our path.
Our heroine Presley is a woman who has lived through trauma she had no control over, and moved on to misguided decisions, unrequited love and the ultimate deception. But a turning point in her life has resulted in the decision to return to her hometown after two years and the only real family she has ever known.
Our hero, well he is a different creature. Aaron isn’t looking for commitment, and has always believed that Presley was his good time girl, and is therefore chuffed that she hasn’t fallen at his feet, but kept her distance since returning.
The history between these two is tested when the sexual chemistry can’t be ignored while a determined Presley chooses to strive for long-term stability, rather than just simple “fun”.
This story reflects real life situations, hard truths, drama and passion in abundance, and the best of intentions borne from secrets and lies.
Can I sum up this series in one word? ADDICTIVE.
"A hero in need of redemption, a heroine up to the challenge, and an idyllic California gold country setting brilliantly launch Novak's foray into the thriving 'small-town community' market." -Library Journal on When Lightning Strikes
